I know Indiana is a majority conservative state, but I also know there are many conservatives who don’t like Trump. If you’re one of those people, I don’t envy you. You must feel so conflicted. I’m here to tell you about the other Jo who might be your solution.
Dr. Jo Jorgensen is the Libertarian nominee. She wants to protect some of the freedoms that conservatives are often passionate about, such as the second amendment and religious freedom.
I hope to see her in the presidential debates because I think that will help maintain a healthy democracy. To be in the debates, a third party candidate must reach at least 15 percent in five major polls. The last Libertarian almost reached this goal in 2016. However, some polls don’t include third options. For this reason, I’ve been emailing news outlets such as CNN, Fox, and The New York Times asking them to include Dr. Jorgensen. I hope if everyone does this, they’ll include her in the polls.
There’s also a petition to include her in the debates at petitions.whitehouse.gov If you’re going to do this, please hurry because the petition needs at least 100,000 signatures by July 22.
